Three-fer: what music do you love?
« on: July 28, 2017, 11:16:33 PM »
I had an interesting experience lately.  Sarah got me interested in an offbeat comedy podcast (Welcome To Night Vale, in case there are other fans out there).  It reminds me of the Firesign Theater, who were the first comedy group to use multi-tracking to create their albums.  Anyway, the Night Vale cast was in Denver, and Sarah and I and a friend of hers went.  Fun was had.

That was all a giant non-sequitor.  Relating to the actual subject line, on the drive Sarah's friend Jack was intrigued that I had a radio show (Celtic Journeys http://krfcfm.org, 2-4pm Mountain time on Sundays) and didn't have a clue what Celtic music was.  So I opined that I could show him what I liked in three tracks.  That felt a little pulled out of my nether regions, but it worked :-)

So what music do you love?  And can you give us a three-fer to demonstrate what you love about a genre, a band, a singer?

Celtic in three:

Irish tunes from Lunasa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ss21UDdg8xo

Singer Mary Black: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzEwN-uvdeY

Scottish groove from Shooglenifty (RIP Angus): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GCJSkVhddM

Take care,

There was something fishy about the butler.  I think he was a Pisces, probably working for scale.

Interesting topic. You have much more eclectic taste than I do :)

This is the song NG plays for me all the time lately, he thinks it describes us pretty well: Greatest Love Story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHl0tlUYDBI
I never had time for country music, but that's all Bob listens to, so it's grown on me.

Other than the country I've been stuck in my highschool/college music tastes lately. I grew up on alternative/grunge, once I broke away from my parents strictly Christian music guidelines. The new pop stuff my kids like gets more and more stupid sounding these days, lol: Sheryl Crow is a favorite:

And I always like a little Johnny Cash, for some reason:

Nice tunes, Rob!

My wife had an eclectic taste in music, which was reflected in the three songs we played at her funeral:

CELTIC TECHNO-FOLK FUSION - Peatbog Faeries: "When the Seahound Left Me"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9Z3UV08IBc

MADCHESTER - The Stone Roses: "This Is the One"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXfnZ7HYD_k

AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL SINGER-SONGWRITER GOSPEL-FOLK - Gurrumal: "Jesu"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqaDuyOOqi8
They lived and laughed and loved and left.

No one ever needs to cite a reason for liking (loving!) a little Johnny Cash!


* Useless with how this quoting mechanism works.
